Description
This collection represents Dawdy's research files for her book: Congress In Its Wisdom: The Bureau of Reclamation and the Public Interest, Studies in Water Policy and Management, No. 13 (Boulder, CO: Westview Press, 1989).
Background
Originally from Minneapolis, MN, Doris Dawdy's first professional aspirations were very different from her present occupation as a researcher of water rights and other historical issues in the American West. In her late-teens, Dawdy played the clarinet, saxophone, and violin in addition to conducting her own orchestra. She attended the MacPhail School of Music in Minneapolis, Minnesota to train as a professional music instructor, but left the school just before graduation to pursue other interests.
